On June 10th the West Side Chamber of Commerce held their first Job Fair at the Pike Performing Arts Center.  Councillor McHenry and a few of the others who helped are getting ready to start signing employers in so they could set up.
There were 60 Employers who manned booths ready to talk to potential employees.

Councillor McHenry helped greet those who were there with resumes and ready to talk to employers.

Well over 800 job seekers attended and were able to check out the various opportunities for jobs that the companies had available.  Job Fair-aganza 2015 was considered a huge success by all.  The West Side Chamber of Commerce is planning on holding it again next year.
